My friend and I are meeting for lunch on Monday and we're craving a great salad. He works near 13th and I'm down on Houston and Hudson. We're looking for a nice quiet place to sit down and catch up. What do the hounds recomend?

      I had the steak salad at Jane today and I was totally blown away. This was off the brunch menu, but it looks like it is also available for lunch.

        yeah i'll have to agree about 12 chairs. i find the place pretty lackluster overall, but they have great salads. westville has a couple of good salads too.

          We had lunch at Westville yesterday. First time, been meaning to for ages. Women next to us had salads, and they looked & smelled great.

            Another vote for 12 chairs - out of the way, quiet and charming. I also love the chicken ceasar at Grey Dog's, but it's loud and crowded. I would not recommend Aroma - it's a soulless, cookie-cutter place.

            Ditch Plains has some good salads; so does Hurapan Kitchen on 7th Ave South near Leroy.

              I adore the salads at Aroma Espresso Bar on Houston and Green. They are huge and hearty and I believe also come with a large slice of home made bread. Check out the Rouqefort salad - I crave it almost everyday. I think you will easily be able to grab a table late on a Monday afternoon.

                I second the reccomendation for Aroma... except I prefer the caesar salad. If you do go there, make sure to try their lemonade and an alfajore for dessert!

              I really enjoyed my salad at Tavern on Jane. They have a couple different kinds and it's really quiet usually.
